Can u take aerosols in your hand luggage?
Each container of liquids, aerosols or gels in your carry-on baggage must be 100 millilitres or less. All the containers must be sealed in a transparent, one-litre plastic bag. You are only allowed one bag. Any resealable bag of one litre capacity or less is allowed.
If you want to travel with your full-size aerosol containers of antiperspirant, hairspray, suntan lotion, shaving cream, and hair mousse, you can do so by packing them in your checked baggage. That way, you'll be sure to have your favorite toiletries with you when you arrive at your destination.
- Gel deodorant and aerosol/spray deodorants must be 3.4 oz or less and placed in a quart sized baggie. Larger sizes can be placed in your checked luggage. You can find deodorant as well as many other toiletry items in travel size containers.
- Aerosols, like other products in liquid form are restricted to 100ml (3oz) or smaller containers, so any larger aerosols will need to go in your luggage in the hold. This means the size of the container when full, so you cannot take a larger used aerosol and claim only 100ml is left.
- The TSA's 3-1-1 security rule for flying with carry-on liquids (3.4 oz bottle or less; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger) is nothing new, but packing to fit all of your lotions and potions into a 1-quart-sized bag can still leave even the most experienced travelers puzzled.
